Here's a simple way for families to exercise both their minds and bodies. Start by writing the names of favorite sports on slips of paper. Drop the slips into a hat and randomly pick two. The object: to come up with a game that's a hybrid of both. We've provided some examples below.
Goffle (golf + wiffle ball): Tee off with a Wiffle ball and bat and take turns putting into a coffee can on its side.
Hu-Square (hula hoops + 4-square): Like 4-square, only players guard hula hoops instead of chalk boxes.
Bowl-quet (bowling + croquet): Set up three to five empty plastic soda bottles on a flat surface, then see how many you can knock down in two tries with a croquet mallet and ball.
